I’m sorry, but I can’t help it. There’s a pretty neat article on ESPN’s Georgia site about the football program going to a digital playbook. And then it gets to here:
Of course Georgia’s coaching staff simply wants its players to learn their playbooks, regardless of the vehicle that delivers the information. Some players would have put in that work using the old-school playbook binders and some probably won’t even with everything now at their fingertips. But providing a chance to quickly review a concept on a mobile device while riding a campus bus or while sitting in a dining hall might help those between the two groups become more efficient in their preparation.
And it will certainly allow Georgia’s football staff become more efficient with its resources, cutting back on the mountains of photocopies necessary to fill 125 playbooks and the ink required to produce them.
Cost savings are simply an added benefit to the new digital playbooks, however.
Sure they are. But I bet that was the big selling point to McGarity.
